Commission: The Fine Print

Art Commission Information

(Go back to form here)

Commissioning is the process by which an Artist creates a work of art on a Client’s request. Requesting a custom, commissioned drawing (or series of pieces) provides the unique opportunity for a Client to own artwork specifically created for them.


It’s important to remember that commissioning abstract (non-representational) art is unique. Clients must allow for creative freedom and gage expectations accordingly.

Commission requests should be within the parameters of the zentangle or mandala design technique. When requesting a commission, you will need to define your desired subject, color palette and size. The Artist will work with you to color match (if desired) and to best understand your wishes.

Turnaround time for commission work will vary. Please coordinate with the Artist to discuss the details of your custom piece and to agree on a timeframe that is reasonable for both parties.

Right of Refusal

It is the intent of this agreement that the Artist create artwork(s) for the Client that the Client will purchase. However, if after the work is completed, the Client does not wish to purchase any or all of the work, the Client may refuse, on an individual basis, each created artwork. In that case, the Artist will retain the refused artwork and the nonrefundable deposit, free of any claims or interests of the Client and the Client will owe no additional fees to the Artist. A refusal will not affect the purchase price of other created artworks in this project.

Delivery Options

The client will be responsible for covering the cost of shipping, if applicable. Please coordinate with the Artist ahead of time to discuss delivery options.
